I know I'm over-reacting, I hope I'm over-reacting. Preacher is not well this morning. He's so stiff and seems unstable on his feet. He's reluctant to move one back leg. He's been slowly going downhill for the past few months. He does have some health issues. I know he's at least 11 years old. Last October he almost died. All of his major organs were starting to shut down, for no apparent reason. My vet was able to bring him back that time. So I've had a year of bonus time with him. My mind knows that Preacher's time is likely to be short, but my heart's not ready to accept that yet.
I left him in the house today with a special treat and his best friend, Franklin. Franklin seemed a little worried too. He didn't want to go outside and play in the tons of fresh snow we got overnight. I'm hoping that the weather change and colder temps are just making Preacher feel crappy.
My handsome guy. This was taken this past summer when Preacher was enjoying a sunny day. There's at least a foot of snow in that spot this morning!
Please keep your paws crossed that this is just a bad day for him.
